Hello. I’m alive. This is either a relief or a huge disappointment to some of you. As most of you pointed out to me through e-mail, twitter, and facebook I have been AWOL form the blog since December and for that I apologize. “What happened?” “Where are you?” “Are you ok?” “Damn it lady I need more food.” “Have you been abducted by Aliens?” “No seriously, where are you?” “It was aliens, wasn’t it?” “I’m a dude I can’t follow recipes, I need more step by step photos. Where did you go.” <- one of my favorites All words from

While Mia and Jack are napping, the groceries are in bags on the floor, it’s 110°F outside (no, that’s not an exaggeration), and the article who’s deadline is 8pm tonight is still in my head, I am procrastinating by bringing you this little photo montage. Enjoy.

This is Jack. Jack recently ran into my arms on my front porch and never left. This past weekend we took Jack to the ranch for the first time. He was in absolute heaven. It was on a walk one morning that he smelled an irresistible smell he had never experienced before. In seconds he was after the trail to… the corral. I fell in love with him even more to see him this happy and was surprised when he obeyed all of the comands we have been working on except… “JACK DON’T ROLL IN THE COW POOP!” That’s not

… because it’s Monday and I need to get in the car and drive to Dallas, I’m leaving you today with a little photo essay from this weekend’s Miracle Match Marathon that The Husband ran. It’s also a post that reminds me that I should have ignored my insane advertising/graphic design path and followed my true passion in art and photography. Oh well, things happen for a reason and if I did follow that path to the Kansas City Art Institute instead of my alma mater University of North Texas I would not have met my amazing, fantastic and quite

springtime at the ranch

I love springtime at the ranch. Everything is refreshed and begining a new cycle of life. Speaking of new cycles of life, In Sock Monkey Slippers will soon be making some changes. New look, new address, and new features coming in May! Tomorrow’s post: Meredith had a little lamb. It’s now in her oven. Happy Easter!

I’m steering away from the recipes and the SAHM bewilderedness for a while to introduce the first round of calfs at the ranch this year. Sorry to do this to you but how could I pass up cute pictures of baby cows? Especially one in particular. Every once in a while there comes a calf that you just love. The last one was four years ago when a very curious calf drank my beer while I was fishing. So, we named her  Hefeweizen. Her tenacity and boldness made her stand out. Even though she did not have the qualities we look

If you know me you know I love spending time at my husband’s family’s ranch. It’s a home away from home and dear to my heart. It was the place my husband took me on our second date and sang me the first song he wrote for me. It’s the place where we used to sneek off to and meet when I was in college at North Texas and he was a wondering musician in the hill country. It’s the place where you can see the most amazing sunsets and sunrises in your life. It’s the place where the water
